  1. "C:PROGRA~2\CRS\be3\playarc01.ww2 is not a previous version and could not be upgraded"

    I'm coming back for the welcome back soldier event and got this error upon loading up 1.34.3

    I know these things usually require a re install, but before doing that I wondered if there was a quicker solution available? I wanna just get in and play and re install usually takes a couple hours, thank you!


  2. Also get an I/O error when trying tor einstiall using my disc from 2005.

    fails at

    \CRS\Battleground Europe\playarc.w2m

    As said, I get this error both when I attempt the disc (which used to work for stuff like this) and the full PC Install, both fail at the same folder, saying it's not a valid version to update. I would be more specific with the file but the error places "..." in front of the name so as to shorten it down, the above filename is as specific as it goes


  3. I'm sorry, this feels like the 100th question :D

    I was doing more research about electrostatic shocks, and it actually says in multiple sites how you can damage a part, without knowing it, so that a few months later it'll act funny, give you blue screens, ect.

    Could you kindly explain indo how you would go about opening up your computer and putting parts in? Specifically, how to stop ESD? What's your preffered surface to work on? Do you always have to keep your hand touching the chasis at all times while working to stay grounded? Stuff like that...

    I feel like I'm over-worrying myself about this, but at the same time that phrase "better safe than ****ed," keeps popping into my head....


  4. just touch the chassis really good with your hand before you take them parts out of the package, then just don't really move around w/o discharging yourself again.

    whole time i've been messing with computers.... and thats been for awhile, i've only zapped one piece of hardware, a eVGA 6600GT, and it still worked fine. (scared the crap out of me) Just mind your P's and Q's while your putting it together and you'll be fine.

    try and handle all the computer parts by the edges, and not the PCB itself, but sometimes you just gotta to fit behemouth video cards in.

    hahah wait until you see the size of that 5770 video card.....just wait.

    K, so don't touch the little metallic lines etched in the board? (if possible)

    Anywhere else is preferable to handle it by?


  5. Your case looks like a rocket ship man haahahhah! That's awesome.

    Thanks for being really cool about my questions man. Don't want to screw this up, or my parents would never allow me to do this again. :rolleyes:

    I think I've exhausted myself of questions now...

    So do you think I'm ready to order now?
